Perhaps the most useful feature of mediation is that the parties get to control the process. We find that clients have more commitment to abiding by their own negotiated agreement than any arrangement a judge would impose. We believe that our role as mediators is to remain neutral and move the process forward by helping the parties communicate effectively.
Another feature of mediation that we greatly encourage our clients to consider is the possibility of bringing in various experts to help resolve specific issues. For example, the emotional effects of divorce on children are of great concern.
